NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 26: Thomas Hickey

The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 32 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

Since the last time, we spoke the New York Islanders were officially eliminated from playoff contention. It was something everyone saw coming but still stung nonetheless when it became mathematically impossible.

The Islanders played four games last week so we’ll get into that, we’ll talk about some prospects down in the Isles system, and discuss how a revamped defense will look.

Here’s what to expect from episode 32:

Short Topics

The last four games (TBL, CHI, FLA, OTT)

This past week the Islanders were 1-3 and were eliminated from the playoffs by the Florida Panthers. We’ll discuss what we noticed from each of these games.

Sebastian Aho sent down/Otto Koivula signed

The Islanders sent Aho back down to the AHL, while also reaching an agreement with Otto Koivula. Koivula was a 2016 fourth round selection.

David Quenneville showed some tremendous growth in the WHL, we’ll discuss his highly productive year.

Long Topic

The biggest flaw of this Islanders team is their defense. This isn’t some new information, but we’ll talk about our plan to fix the position for 2018 and beyond.
